officer: the senator from illinois. mr. durbin: i ask unanimous consent the period of morning business be extended until 4:00 p.m. today, that all provisions of the previous order remain in effect. the presiding officer: is there objection? without objection. mr. durbin: i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from kansas. mr. roberts: i ask the quorum call be lifted. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. roberts: let me take a moment to welcome to you the united states senate and i look forward to working with you. welcome to the united states senate. over the christmas holidays much of our nation was foikdz on what congress would do to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. what was large-missing from that conversation was how to address the much greater and more damaging problem, our growing national debt. i'm not exactly sure what the definition of fiscal cliff was. i think it is different meanings to different people. we dealt with a portion of the fiscal
out of the senate by late spring or summer. senator durbin and i spoke to the president yesterday to update him on the group's progress. and he couldn't be more pleased. he strongly support this is effort. the key to our compromise so to recognize that americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration and support legal immigration. to this end our framework contains four basic pillars. first, we create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants currently living in the united states that is contingent upon securing our borders. second, we reform our legal immigration that will build the american economy and strengthen american families. third, we create an effective employment verification system that will present identity theft and tend hiring of future unthorsed workers and lastly, we establish an improved process for e admitting future workers to serve our work force needs while protecting all workers. other bipartisan senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals. but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. t
